I've seen them as cheap as $700.00. Mine is a Vector, I got it for $725.00 on sale. Great gun, super easy to break down and clean, fun to shoot. Women and beginner shooters love it, it has about as much recoil as a .22. Mine has the Hebrew markings for the fire selector.
One of my favorite guns. Sure, you can get a Hi Point carbine for $329.00 that will put the same bullet down range. But it's all plastic, the Uzi is all metal. The Hi Point has zero history, the Uzi has a ton of history, even if you buy a clone and not a real IMI Uzi. I just have a soft spot in my heart for the Uzi, I've wanted one since I was a kid in the 60s.
